The museum is known for kid-friendly interactive displays and popular shows featuring props from films such as "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter." You can visit a number of permanent exhibitions, including one displaying a life-size model of a Space Shuttle cockpit.

A great museum in a great location. Hours of interesting things to see and fun for the kids. Recommended especially on those cold wet days. more »
It was one of my best experiences in Sydney. Great museum. Also the Star Wars exhibition is wonderful. Definitely worth the money. You don't really have to be a fan of Star Wars to enjoy it. If you've seen them once, you'll have a good time. Keep in mind that it took us 5 hours to see the exhibition and the museum itself altogether.
A fantastic destination during the school holidays for the kids. This museum definitely makes learning fun. There are countless activities and experiences within this museum touching on how the world works. Located conveniently in Darling Harbour prices can get a little steep for some families.
